The S-Cross from Maruti Suzuki was first introduced way back in August 2015. However, owing to high pricing, in fact the highest in the automaker’s line-up, its sales did not hit that high note which we have come to expect from Maruti Suzuki’s cars. This time though, the S-Cross has finally achieved a milestone by selling over 50,000 units.
Three years after introducing it in the European markets, Suzuki has thoroughly updated the S-Cross. The C segment crossover offering now gets an upright front end styling for a more impactful road presence. Here’s a deeper look into the upgrades, some of which will eventually reflect on to the India-spec Maruti Suzuki S-Cross.

Maruti Suzuki had launched their Crossover SUV, the S-Cross, last year to compete against the likes of the Duster and later, the Hyundai Creta.
